When selecting that residential area, you also need to consider a number of things regarding the neighborhood:
1. The buildings within the area: check the proximity of schools, hospitals and other buildings to your chosen area, so that you know where to go in times of emergency and also so you can estimate whether your area is a passing-thru area for other people who have to go to these places.
2. Traffic situation: The closer you are to business establishments and other major institutions, the greater the chances that your neighborhood will be exposed to noise and to heavy traffic.
3. History. What was the area before they put up your house? It pays to know what was once there.
